Mugabe, Marufu marry

Marriage

mugabeMugabe marries Grace Marufu in a Catholic mass, in Kutama, 80 kilometres (50 miles) west of Harare. The church wedding has been criticised by some Catholic leaders, who argue Christian doctrines brand polygamy as adultery. President Chissano of Mozambique is best man. After the three-hour ceremony the couple emerge from the church to thousands of well wishers singing and and cheering. Nelson Mandela and leaders from Botswana and Namibia attend the reception.
